Can't go wrong with Open the Graves or Desecrated Tomb ... just sayin'

There's no real advantage from this infinite combo, much like the Felidar Sovereign + Aminatou, the Fateshifter combo, but with a third card, you can easily generate a lot of value. If there's an anthem, or another Vampire at the beginning, you can generate infinite mana or infinite Vampire tokens. If you have a Mortician Beetle , if can get infinitely large, Soul Warden would gain infinite life Desecrated Tomb would grant infinite Bats.

I'd cut a land, Taigam, Sidisi's Hand , you could cut Birthing Pod or Prime Speaker Vannifar (I don't think you need both), maybe Search for Azcanta  Flip and Desecrated Tomb (I don't think you'll get enough value from this to run it).

So, I think what you need to do is focus your deck. It looks like you tried to take a bunch of Sultai good stuff and cram all of it into your deck. It looks like you are trying to do a "lands matters" build with a ton of value creatures in it, too. You have to figure out which way you want to go, as you probably won't be able to do both (but if it works, I guess go for it...I just don't see it). If it were me, I'd cut the lands matters route, but keep just a few of the cards for value, like World Shaper and Boundless Realms .

You've got a ton of creatures crammed in here, and are running quite the reanimator package to go with it. I think this can work well, too, as you can cast a creature once with Muldrotha and then a reanimating enchantment once per turn. You might be running too many creatures, though, and not leaving room for other permanent types to get the value out of Muldrotha, so look at this and see how it plays for you. It may be tough to do both the reanimator route and the lands matters route, but please, let me know if it works out well for you. I hope my suggestions help out a little.

Desecrated Tomb would work here if you included graveyard retrieval, cheap stuff like Death Denied .

Mausoleum Secrets is great. You can easily get a bunch of creatures in your graveyard for this spell because they come back anyway. Desecrated Tomb works well with your commander. Deathgreeter likes it when things die.

Bone Shredder kills himself off with echo while continuously killing off other creatures. Eliminate the Competition and Malicious Affliction also give you more kill spells.

And why not? You can use Meekstone , too.

I did change quite a few cards, including Desecrated Tomb . Coat of Arms is staying in fow now, further testing shall evaluate wether the card is useful or not.

I feel I am getting to where I want the deck to be. Maybe if I could slot a couple more turn 1-2 plays, like the Familiar you mentioned, and one slot dedicated to stuff like Mystic Remora , I would be happy.

It's allright, if I don't accept criticism I am not gonna improve the dek much lol.

You are kind of right, I put in Desecrated Tomb to cover my weakness to flyers, but I think Wonder already does a nice job. I would seek another massive pump to replace Coat of Arms though... maybe Mirror Entity or Cathars' Crusade .

Dek's lacking strong turn 1 plays also. Wanted to make an aggro/control hybrid but I dont think its gonna work well. What do you say?

Also Desecrated Tomb is a great card for this deck while your taking things out of your graveyard, it not only gives you disposable tokens but they are flying tokens to boot. Great synergy with this deck.
